Enjoy One Great Day in Puerto Morelos.
My friends and I, enjoy a lot to be one day in Puerto Morelos, we walk around, we play with the small waves of the sea, we run on the beach and laugh a lot.
Puerto Morelos is so easy to enjoy because is developed in a very small area, you can walk the complete town area, most of the people rent a bike because this way they can carry some things with them in other to bike, laid out in the beach some time, enjoy the ocean, take pictures and then go for a bit, a cold beer or a nice cocktail at the beach bar or some place around and back to the hotel where you are staying.
Everybody here has a smile in their face, they will help you with directions or recommendations in where to go.
Most of the visitants of this area decide to enjoy their vacations or live here because Puerto Morelos still has the fishers town flavor, there is no big night shows or three floors disco bars. The city is growing, now you can enjoy beach bars that are open until 12 pm or great music or wine or food festivals at the main area but I feel that everything is designed to be enjoyed with all the members of the family giving you a huge change to spend time with your family and enjoy great events.

An Easy Cactus Leaves Recipe.
This great and healthy dish is very easy to cook, it will take you less than 20 minutes to have it ready to serve.
When I was living in Cancun, I use to have lunch at a family restaurant that was very close to my office. What I like from them is that they always offer healthy dishes and the cooker always take the time to explain to you how every dish were prepared and why was good for your body. This is one of my favorites.
Where to buy Cactus paddles.
If you are in Mexico, you can buy the cactus paddles in the super market at the vegetables area or in the local market, ask for the one that are already clean (without the thorns). If you are in the United States, you need to look for it at the Mexican stores or at the Farmers Markets. Also, you can have cactus plants in your garden and take some of the young leaves to prepare this dish.
When you have the cactus leaves all ready clean, prepare the rice and have the green salad.
Then just grill the cactus leaves with a little of oil, when you see that they are tender place the cheese between two paddles and cook until the cheese melt.
The cheese, we like the fresh cheese or panela cheese, because are the ones that have less grease, but you can also use asadero, monterrey or any cheese that you like, just remember that the flavor will depend a lot in the type of cheese that you use.
